The Men’s Network is to host the UK’s first National Conference For Men & Boys in Brighton & Hove this November in the run up to International Men’s Day 2011.
The day long event, to be held on Tuesday 1st November, aims to create the most remarkable gathering of people committed to improving the world for men and boys the country has ever seen and will focus on the areas of health, education, fatherhood and safety.
The conference will build on the work undertaken in Brighton & Hove to create the world’s first citywide strategy for men and boys around the four key themes listed below.
- Improving men and boys health
- Giving boys the best possible start in life
- Supporting fathers at every stage of fatherhood
- Making our communities safer by keeping men and boys safe
- A panel debate, why do we need a national strategy for men and boys
- A showcase of projects from around the UK highlighting great examples of work with men and boys from around the UK
- Visioning session looking at how life could be different for men and boys in the UK and what shared objectives could we all work together to achieve
- A barrier busting session exploring what stops us improving life for men and boys and how do we tackle those barriers?
- A collective brainstorming session to identify the key actions delegates want to see taken for men and boys across the country
